First Crime Club edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on front free endpaper: “Dear Leila McKinley: It gives me pleasure to inscribe this to you because you have sent me your books and because of our happy meeting. I hope I shall see you in America sometime not too far-off. Sincerely, Mignon G. Eberhart. Nice, France – January 21, 1932”. The first US edition of Eberhart’s fourth novel was published earlier in 1931 by Grosset & Dunlap while the first UK edition appeared a year later.

Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front board in black on red, top edge red. Spine gently cocked and sunned, boards lightly scuffed and soiled, corners a touch bumped, small blue ink scribble to front pastedown, very slight offsetting from the lightly tanned title page, text block strained in a few places but firm, occasional red pencil underlining. A very good copy.
